Office space expansion required to meet member demand
With the advent of new Local officers and a reorganization of historical and administrative records, the executive board of Local 828 unanimously approved in a July meeting that it was necessary to add new space at it's current headquarter operations, located at 167 Flanders St.
Bess Watts, president of Local 828 says, "Our charter is almost 60 years old, and we have accumulated a lot of history. We are proud to say that most of it is now under one roof. We added more square footage to our existing lease to accomodate another office and more storage for the tons of supplies and records that date back to 1950. It was the prudent thing to do to best serve the members of this Local while also looking toward the future."
Administrative Assistant Barbara Fragassi says, "Our office is underutilized. I would like all Unit Presidents and committee chairs to know they are welcome to come in and take full advantage of our facilities and what we have to offer. Our offices here are equipped with a color copier, folding machine, fax machine and a conference room which can accommodate up to 15 people.”
Barb divides her time working for both the Monroe County Employee Unit 7400 and with the Local 828 to keep all our operations running smoothly. You can contact her by calling the union office at 328-5250 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org .
When the dust settles, Bess will likely have walk-in office hours and would love to give every member who is interested a tour of our new space.
